These potatoes are spicy, full of flavour and also quite good for you as they are packed with proteins. If you feel like indulging a bit, add some sour cream on top or some shredded cheese.
- 4 medium potatoes
- 100 g chili beans, canned, drained and 1 tbs liquid reserved
- 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 2 tablespoons cheese, grated (optional)
- sour cream (optional)
- Wash potatoes (do not peel). Prick several times with a fork.
- Bake in the pre heated oven at 180°C/375°F for 45-60 minutes until potatoes are tender.
- Let cool a bit. Cut off a slice of the long side of the potatoes. Scrape out flesh, leaving a potato boat, which you can then fill.
- Combine beans, 1 tbs of the bean liquid, oil and spices in a bowl. Add potato flesh (including the slices you cut off). Mash.
- Fill the chunky bean mash into the potato skins. Top with cheese if desired.
- Return to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
- Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top if you like.
I made this for lunch using homemade beans, served with a salad for great meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll be making this again when I have leftover vegetarian chili. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Great lunch for the DM and I which we thoroughly enjoyed. I used about 150 g of my recipe of Quick Boston Baked Beans which meant it wasn't vegetarian as it has bacon in it. I used 2 large potatoes which I microwaved for 8 minutes (making it super quick), also I didn't mash up the bit I cut off but put it on the top to one side to form a cap which went nice and crispy. Thank you Lalaloula for a great lunch, made for Went to Market. UPDATE - made this again this afternoon for lunch for myself and used commercial baked beans which I spiced up with some hot chilli sauce and served with a simple tomatoe and cucumber salad. Thanks once again Lalaloula.
This jazzed up spud was dinner last evening all by it's self. Things got a little busy around here around dinner time and I didn't even bother to mash them, just mixed everything, the potato meat was so well cooked that it broke down on it's own while stirring the mix together. Very tasty and filling! I must confess to cheating a bit when it came time for the cheese I just microwaved it to melt. I absolutely make this again and next time I'll mash the bean filling and then bake it off.
